Who is Salomon?

Salomon was born in the French Alps in 1947. With its HQ in the beautiful town of Annecy on Lake Annecy, it’s easy to see where they get the inspiration for all the innovative products they’ve introduced over the past 60 years. It’s no wonder that they are known as the mountain company!

Salomon is focused on evolution and the fact that people and places are dynamic. So, it makes sense to them that products need to be advanced and modified. The motto of the founder George Salomon (1925-2010) says it all,

“One must continuously forge ahead. What fascinates me is what I am going to do tomorrow.”

The R&D department works with athletes at the top of their game to develop finely tuned products which has undergone months of rigorous testing and tweaking before making it into the shops. If it doesn’t deliver performance, fit and comfort at every level, it won’t make it through. This ensures that they give runners exactly what they want – and need.
